Large Pine Dresser and first time using Dark wax!!!

 My Biggest piece of furniture so far. This time using Old Ochre Annie Sloan Chalk paint and finished with dark wax.

It was my first time using dark wax and was a bit scary at first but luckily there are lots of great videos on you tube that give great tips on how to use it.
 It took my a long time to do this piece and at first I wasn't happy with it, you know how it is when you work on a project for a while I think you just get bored with it! Any how I love how it has come out.
 We used beeswax for the top surface and handles after they had been sanded down.

Now in search of my next project!


  1. It has come out pretty good, is the dark wax only on the wooden part or do you put it over the chalk paint too.

    1. Hi Merle,
      I have dark waxed over the old ochre chalk paint. The natural wood you can see has just been beeswaxed.
      Thanks for looking!
      hugs Aly x

    Love Chrissie xx
